  1. So we have the occasional rabbit, opossum or armadillo invade our fenced in back yard. Before we let our two girls out to do their jobs, we check to make sure the "coast is clear". Last night, this check revealed a rabbit. Went back into the house, advised my wife who proceeded to get the flashlight while I retrieved my Henry .22 rifle. We were fortunate that the rabbit had not moved from when I initially spotted it, and after I had gotten as close as I could without spooking it, my wife shone the flashlight on the rabbit while I lined up the sights on my Henry. (NOTE: We also have a halogen light in the back yard that provided initial lighting) Here was my dilemma: Even with the halogen light and the flashlight, I could not accurately get the sights aligned as the area I was standing was still in the dark. Needless to say, I fired, the rabbit turned its head and stuck out its tongue before it disappeared into the darkness. My wife called it a "MISS" ! My Henry, even with stock sights, is alarmingly accurate (credit the shooter ); however, this is the only instance I can think of where shooting in the dark was involved. What changes can I, or should I make to the sights to eliminate this situation and what, if anything, have you done to your Henry .22 to alleviate this issue. Your assistance is greatly appreciated as I cannot afford another missed opportunity. My shooting skills will become fodder for the varmint community.
